I put up a couple more tunes on the Kitchen Musician site.  

For Fool’s Day, I had forgotten to put up the Colonel Bogey March, which was 
written about a real English Colonel, who loved golf and who had a habit of 
whistling instead of shouting “Fore!”  The theme was whistled in the old movie 
“Bridge on the River Kwai”.  For April Fool’s Day, there are parody lyrics:
“Comet, It makes your teeth turn green.
“Comet, It tastes like gasoline.
“Comet, It makes you vomit,
“So try some Comet, and vomit, today.”

The other is a bit more serious.  It’s Colonel McBain’s Reel from Robert 
Bremner’s 1769 Collection of Scots Reels and Dances.  McBain’s is in three part 
harmony - two treble clef and one bass.  The original is in G minor, and with 
that version, I included Bremner’s dance instructions.  Since a lot of dulcimer 
players do not like flat keys, there is also a version in D minor - mixolydian 
mode, with no sharps or flats in the key signature.  There is one pesky B flat 
in the melody though.  The sheet music for both version is in the form of a png 
file.  Hopefully everyone can read png; it’s been around for a few years now.

Several years ago, we recorded Col. McBain’s Reel in a mash up with a Bach two 
part invention on our Neuantics CD.
